    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Did you elect short-term disability?

    Can you recommend a RN to BSN school to RN to MSN ?

    I've never heard of any facility having issues with a BSN from WGU.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    I know of no places in the US that offer maternity leave. You would likely need to move to Canada or Europe, or another place with socialized healthcare to find that.

    Good luck with that.
  5. Since you keep bringing this up yourself....doesn't your lack of interest in sex make her unhappy? A sexless relationship is not a healthy relationship, generally speaking.

    does day shift exist?

    Generally, day shift is the more desirable shift, and it's filled by night shift nurses who move to days after gaining seniority. So I would not hold out hope of getting a day shift position in L&D.
  7. IMO yes, it crosses a professional boundary. Ask yourself this question: how would you feel about the situation if the patient were female?

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    And why did you take this job again?

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    Is it not online for anyone to access?

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    So if you want to take time off, do you just take it unpaid?

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    I'd be curious to know the answer to that as well. "Buying" PTO may not necessarily be a bad thing, depending on how much they offer per year.

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    A per diem employee can still work fulltime hours. You are accepting higher wages in lieu of benefits. That's not uncommon. Edit: I see in your OP that you still have benefits taken out of your pay check. I take back what I said. That does seem really weird. Have you done the math to see how you would come out either way?

    Does your employer charge you for PTO?

    It sounds like a weird way of defining per diem (non-benefit earning, including PTO) vs. benefited position. Per diem typically pays more hourly wages in lieu of benefits and earned PTO. That's not uncommon.

    Notified of call before being on call

    I just don't consider listening to a voicemail saying "We need you here at 0700" to be providing free services. That's just really bizarre to me.

    Nurses secretive about getting another job

    Because some people don't like other people being all up in their business. This entitlement to know what's going on in other people's lives is odd to me.

    Notified of call before being on call

    IMO, there should be no expectation that they answer their phone at 0500. There should be an expectation that we will leave a message at 0500, letting you know we need you to arrive at 0700, and that you will receive that message whenever you get up, and you will arrive for your shift on time. I'm still wanting to know if they left a message for her when they called at 0500.

    Expiration date checks on supplies

    But WHY?? The expiration date is right freaking there! What a colossal waste of time.
  20. You realize that the commute from Carson City to Sacramento is like 3 hours (one way), right?

    Need advice in a sticky situation

    Why does the hospital have concerns about you? Are you meeting with your manager, or HR? To ask for a meeting and not tell you why suggests that they're planning on firing you.

    Notified of call before being on call

    I don't believe the OP has answered the question as to whether the house supervisor (or whoever called her at 0500) left a voicemail. Also, I'm curious what is the hospital's policy on response time?

    Notified of call before being on call

    I’m glad to hear you’re less upset now. I find the past interpretation of “on call” interesting, because I’ve worked in many places and Ive NEVER seen it work that way. How does that work, exactly? If there is a sick call and they know they will need you for the entire shift, and you don’t have to actually answer your phone until 0700, what does that off-going nurse do? Does she have to stay late while she’s waiting for you to come in, which may not happen until 0730 or 0800?

    Ratios Mom Baby Northern California

    Yeah, it’s a constant battle (literally - every four hours, night and day, I’m justifying why we have a certain number of nurses on the unit).

    Are you in Santa Rosa, by chance? I keep getting emails from recruiters for a manager position at that hospital - it seems they can’t keep a manager there!
